When it comes to getting your period, there's nothing more frustrating than inconsistency. Hell, the inconsistency of anything is irritating, but when talking about your monthly flow, the last thing you want it to be is a surprise. Still, when your period comes early, you've got to be prepared to handle it and know what your body is trying to tell you. First, for clarity, an early period is not the spotting that you may get before your period officially starts.
First of all, can we agree that a solar eclipse sounds extravagantly fancy? It sounds like something that'd come up in a casual conversation with an astrologist, or like, something that people who wear lunar symbols on their necklaces would know about. So, for us regular peeps, let's break down what this rare event really is, and secondly, how to celebrate a solar eclipse. To put it simply, a solar eclipse is when the moon passes between the Earth and the sun, completely covering the latter.
I always find that my best ideas come from the times when I am in my quietest moments. In fact, I make it a point now to mindfully create quiet moments around me to allow for inspiration to do its thing. Sometimes, when music is playing, my phone is going off, and my laptop is open, I can almost feel my inability to think — and it drains me.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
